Starting on Monday, March 31, we kick off enough another quarter of terrific talks as part of the Wildlife Science Seminar! Professor Chris Grue of the School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences will be leading the course this spring, and topics range widely from killer whales to bats in the Peruvian Amazon to birds in suburban Seattle.
The Wildlife Seminar will meet on Mondays from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Architecture (ARC) Hall, Room 147. Undergraduate students may register for credit under ESRM 455; graduate students under ESRM 554.
